Reviews - What do customers think about Temporary Custody Permanent Roots?

Survivor  Dec 1, 2003
It took a true survivor to write down the hurtful memories from childhood like Kathleen Frank experienced.
It is an accounting of what went wrong with systems that failed children. The parents,foster parents, relatives, children homes,
and schools all failed.If only they could be accountable for their actions or lack of correct actions.
I applaud Kathleen, she took a horrible childhood learned that there was a better way to should be done.We can't change what's
been done,but we can improve on things in the future.
I hope more people will read Kathleen's book, and treat children with more respect so they may carry it into adulthood.
excellent book  Nov 2, 2003
Reviewer Pattie Briskey of holiday island ar.
The book permanent roots that I have Just read was a wonderful book. It has inspired my life and I would recommend this book to every one to read. I really enjoyed reading it. What I like the most about the book is that she struggled all the way through her growing up years but continued to endure through all the pain no matter what she went trhough she made it. And later on in life she became what she wanted to be in life. I feel all she went through made a impact on her life as well as others. Get a copy of this book and read it. You'll be glad you did. -Pattie Briskey-
A heart breaking story.  Nov 2, 2003
As I read this book Temporary Custody Permanent Roots, I got a understanding of what my family went through in the foster system. The stories they told me were horrible something no child should indure. I thank my parents for taking that chance and raising me to the person I am today. I look to Kathleen for the hero she is and helping the children in need and making a change in their lifes and to my own.
A success story  Oct 27, 2003
There is no bitterness in Kathy, no trailing anger, no regrets. She is friendly, warm, and productive. How did she survive what she narrates in her book to become the person she is now?

She tells us the the story of her life with surprising candor and honesty. She does not cry as she talks, she just talks. Her book feels like it might have felt for her to live in the children's home: an endless succession of neglectful, abusive situations that become natural -"normal"- simply because they are the elements of her daily life.

This book is of extreme value to all involved in the care of children dependent on state agencies. A child can usually say little about what is wrong in her life. Often she dos not even know that her circumstances are different. Voices like Kathy's, that rise as an afterthought because they belong to the few really successful survivors of the system, should be listened to carefully. Their message must be used to transcribe the voices of those still being shuffled through the laberynth.

Kathy's book should also be placed in the hands of these children. Her voice carries strength and determination. Her honesty opens doors usually kept closed. Her message inspires. Her book has the power to help plant a seed of self-respect and love in the hearts of those who might be powerless to stop living "temporarily".
